A master class in modern Java

In this workshop, you will learn how to use new APIs, language enhancements, as well as other features of JDK 9, 10, 11 and 12. Together, we will study the most useful enhancements to existing Java APIs, including Collections, Stream, Optional, and CompletableFuture, as well as several new APIs, such as Reactive Streams, Stackwalker, ProcessHandle, HTTP/2 Client, and others. We’ll also get our hands on new language features, like the private interface methods, effectively final variables in try-with-resources, local variable type inference, local-variable syntax for lambda parameters, and more. We will talk about best practices and patterns for using these features in the context of modern applications with special emphasis on producing clean code.

This is a very hands-on session providing you with the opportunity to truly learn modern Java by solving a series of tasks covering many of its exciting features.
